Bellefontaine now has a hotline for people to call in and report sightings of feral and stray cats.
The calls will help establish a database that could be used to land funding for a cat population control program.
Area residents can call 651-3259 24 hours a day. An automated answering machine will ask them to leave necessary information for the program.
Lori Plummer of the Humane Society Serving Logan County has told the Bellefontaine City Council there may be as many as 13,000 stray and feral cats in the county.
The council hopes a program to capture and then spay or neuter stray cats before rerelease will help trim the cat population.
